What Does Global Scholars Canada Do?
Global Scholars Canada is the Canadian affiliate of Global Scholars based in Kansas City (GS-US www.global-scholars.org). Global Scholars Canada has worked closely with GS-US since 1995 to develop and maintain a community of Christian professors who serve with excellence in public universities outside of North America.
In the context of its partnership with GS-US, Global Scholars Canada focuses on the placement of Christian professors who are Canadian citizens or Permanent Residents of Canada.
The professors teach their disciplines in the context of a Christian worldview and values. In doing so, these professors are salt and light (Matthew 5:13-14) for future leaders in nations where there often is little if any witness to the gospel. Global Scholars Canada professors are God’s ambassadors “seeking the peace (shalom) of the city,” (Jeremiah 29:7) through their presence in classroom worldwide.
Over the years we have been blessed with quality faculty serving in selfless ways around the world. Global Scholars Canada and GS-US together have over 130 professors teaching in more than 45 countries. Our desire is to continue to expand our efforts globally, wherever God leads us, so that we may continue to stand at the intersection of the academy and culture.
The Society of Christian Scholars is the newest initiative of GS-US in equipping and supporting the global community of christian scholars worldwide. Click here or on the image above for more information.
Why Focus on Professors?
In many nations only a small fraction of the population is able to attend university. University graduates are destined to be cultural leaders in their home countries. GSC has an opportunity to influence the next generation of leaders worldwide through Christian professors who equip students to lead well, and in the process introduce them to the grace and truth of the gospel.
Our professors have influence beyond the classroom. GSC/Global Scholars professors were invited to provide leadership training for all the university presidents, top deans and academic officers in Afghanistan. In Nigeria, the federal government asked our professors to develop a faith-based AIDS awareness program for every public elementary and secondary school in the nation, teaching biblical values to hundreds of thousands of students each year.
We invite you to join us in this unique and highly strategic Mission!
